Pale orange pour with a large white head...nice retention and lacing. Nose is mainly citrus, specifically mango and pineapple with some earthy hops and a bread dough malt backbone. Medium bodied...flavor consists of lightly spice citrus and very mild notes of toasted malts.

Tall boy can from sherm1016...thanks. Pours a rich, hazy orange....but doesn’t quite live up to its hype from there....some hops but not really a ’punch’....a pleasant beer for a spring evening....

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 1 pint can.Pours a crystal clear, light copper with a bubbly, one finger, white head.Aroma is slight with notes of bread, citrus, and slightly floral. Taste is slightly bitter and floral with notes of pine, resin, citrus, a mildly dry, bitter aftertaste. Low to medium body. Medium carbonation. Pretty clean in the mouth and very refreshing. Not a bad brew. Slightly better on draft I believe. Would get again.

Nice, drinkable but still citrusy. It’s a nice warm weather drinker... Well done pale.

Can from rayl101 - pours deep gold with a thin but sustained head. Nose is more like a lager. The taste is citrus at first but leans more towards a dry pine. Dry finish.

16oz can from Crown Liquors in downtown Indy. Golden color, aroma is lost on me thanks to my sinuses. Taste is of citrus hops with a nice malt background. This is a very well balanced beer and I wish I had more than I brought home with me. If you’re a fan of citrus-hops pale ales, you’ll enjoy this one quite a bit.

Pours a clear slightly olive orange color with a medium-thick head from a growler. Nice hoppy aroma. Full-flavored mouth that’s a tang sour.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can poured into a shaker. Pleasant notes of grapefruit, orange, and their respective peels, toasted bread, and some caramel hit the nose. It pours an oily, light copper / orange color topped with a puffy off-white head. There’s a good amount of lace and the fluffy head recedes slowly, eventually reducing to a medium thick ring with a surface haze. The taste is a high/medium-high bitter with a medium sweet backbone. It has an oily texture with an average amount of somewhat soft, but fizzy head. The finish is grapefruit and caramel with a spice quality to it. The spice and grapefruit linger for a while with a citrus note appearing too.

Tap at Ale Emporium. Pours cloudy dark orange with thick foamy white head. Nose is sharp citrus hops. Taste is crisp citrus hops with a spicy salt and pepper feel to it. Pretty dry, yet very refreshing. Nice taste, very different than most pales.
